💫 A couple years ago, I heard this word, hygge (pronounced hue-guh) a Danish word that represents a whole state of being and feeling. Words used to describe it would be cozy, comfort, simplistic, warm or content.
❄️ It’s said that this was developed to try to ward off the blues during long, dark, cold days of the winter months.
It’s created by cozy environment, comfort food, warm drinks, candlelight, reading, reflecting, most importantly no screens. ☕
I think hygge is most important to me around Christmas. It’s like society is giving you a small window of time to be with loved ones, reflect on life and for me to reconnect with God. I think hygge fits perfectly into this forum.
I tried to embrace this ambiance every Christmas, even before I knew there was a word for it! Sitting around, enjoying a hot chocolate, playing games with the family. (We also include Christmas movies & music tho! 😉)
I truly wish for each and every one of you, a peaceful, hygge filled Christmas full of love and laughter. Making memories, reconnecting with yourself and your intentions, preparing yourself for a new year full of opportunity and fulfillment. ❤️
Peace & Love ☮️
